New earnings structure for Contributors

Recommended Posts

By mid month:

June 2019 $0.887 average per download

June 2020 $0.375 average per download

 

Even with my ODDs and SODs I'm making less than I would have with only subs.

 

Sorry Shutterstock. If this is what is meant by "to create fair opportunities for all our contributors, and reward performance with greater earnings potential." I guess i'm not wanted around here. Not sure what I was doing last year that was unfair to be honest.

It has been a good run all things considered.

Time to go.

Today I deactivated my sales( I didnt delete anything). Guess what happened?

I had over 2000 vector images. Now there is just 1877... Does anybody know why it happens? 🤔 Will it reach Zero?

It will reach 0 in 72 hours. 

Your images are still here, they're not deleted

You disable SALES! Read the description (question mark near on/off trigger). Is it possible in this situation to keep sales? No!

Portfolios can't disappear in one click. Indexation takes time.

To summarize. 

Apart for the few trolls, almost everybody's earnings dropped. 

With the new system, customers pay exactly the same as before, you get less (up to 0.10 in most cases) and the difference is kept by SS. That's the new fair earnings system. 

But, listen, there's a good news (although, only for SS). In January, customers will still pay the same, you will get much much less no matter your sales and SS will get much much more.

Just think about how much lighter your wallet will be!

And, your shelves and pantry will be so much less cluttered!

You'll help save the planet by not driving as much as well!

Nothing but winning.

No, Victoria, I can't buy your image although I can see it. Screenshot attached - an error above of the image is shown...

But this means that the amount of images displayed in the database is far from correct.

It also means that there will be more frustrated buyers who want to buy an image but can't, which is certainly annoying.
Additional to that it means that the communication effort for the staff at the moment could be gigantic if more and more buyers have to contact support because they want to have exactly this image. Or the buyers are fed up at some point and buy somewhere else...

Yes, i suggest anyone who asked to delete account and didn't get a reply to spam them. They will reply soon. 

Someone is called spammer, someone (SS) is scammer. 

Adam, Jose Hernandez us a known troll. A lot of users have placed them on the ignore list. 

The best way to deal with trolls is to deprive them of conversations.

You can hover over is forum icon and choose 'Ignore User'

is it trolling to give your opinion? Or it is only you who decides because for the moment and in view of your answer I do not know who troll the other by the way, too easy what you shame on you, and I still have something to see here, when you are no longer your case, or else we will have to have you on your back again for months, to spit your venom and come to cry, go ahead and go live your life ... elsewhere if possible

Jose, how come you do not get bored living in the ass to people who profit from other people's troubles and do ?!

You're right and I apologize, I'm leaving the forum now, it's not my war but yours, Good luck to all !!

You're not able to maintain your own words. 

You're not able to stay in topic. 

You use distractions snd big fonts to move the attention from what's important. 

That's your credibility. 

Hope the money you get from SS to troll (that is stolen from us) helps you getting a life.
